Person Closing a Security Gate

As a business owner, your business is everything.  Therefore, you want to make sure you are protecting your employees, customers and assets.  Installing a security fence on your commercial property is one of the best lines of defense.  With so many fencing options available today, how do you know what is best for your business.

Well, there are many factors, outside of security, that may come into play, such as privacy, curb appeal, budget and type of business.  To help you get started, Pittsburgh Fence Co, Inc. expands on the most common fence materials used for security fences in Pittsburgh.


From installation to maintenance to aesthetics, an aluminum fence is a popular choice for security.  Based on your size requirements, you can have your fence easily customized to fit the areas needing secured. The vertical bar design of aluminum fencing deters unwanted guests, as it is difficult to climb. Entry and driveway gates, which can be locked as needed, are a great addition for added security.  The gates are made of the same aluminum and as strong as the fence panels.

When it comes to curb appeal, aluminum fencing is preferred, with many business owners adding ornamental designs to their fences.  The upkeep of this durable material is minimal and its resistance to corrosion makes it even easier to maintain.

 Chain Link

If budget is a major concern, chain link fences are one of the most affordable options for commercial fencing in Pittsburgh.  Inexpensive to install, chain link fences are popular choices for their affordability, durability and easy maintenance.  While they may not be the most attractive option, don’t underestimate their power when it comes to durability and security.

Chain link fences hold up well under adverse weather conditions due to their zinc-coating; therefore they require little maintenance.  For added security, you can customize the gauge thickness of your chain link fence.  A heavier gauge provides less visibility for outsiders.  Choosing the correct gauge and fence height will provide ample security for your commercial property at an affordable price.   To deter unwanted guests from scaling your chain link fence, consider adding fence-top deterrents, such as anti-climb spikes, points or barbed wire.


Wood fences provide security and privacy as well as flexibility when it comes to color.  They can be stained, painted or left to their natural wood color, which is a plus when it comes to curb appeal.  They are a cost-effective option, but they do require more maintenance than other materials. With proper care, they can last several years.


Vinyl, a durable, long-lasting, low-maintenance option, is growing in popularity with business offices and apartment complexes.  Resistant to rot and corrosion, it tends to be more expensive than other commercial fencing materials, but its performance and durability justify the cost. Today’s vinyl comes in a variety of styles, colors and textures.
